McDonnell, Jindal rally
BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) -- Gov. Bobby Jindal is spending Wednesday in Virginia, campaigning for Republican Mitt Romney's presidential bid.
A schedule put out by the Romney campaign says Jindal will join Gov. Bob McDonnell for three campaign stops, first in Portsmouth, to rally Romney supporters.
The Louisiana governor's traveled extensively during this election season to support GOP candidates and causes and to raise money for them.
In the last month, Jindal's been to Nevada, Colorado, Georgia, Iowa, Pennsylvania, Indiana, Montana and New Hampshire.
The first stop was at Crofton Industries at 16 Harper Ave. in Portsmouth, where Jindal told a few dozen supporters that Barack Obama is the nation's most incompetent president since Democrat Jimmy Carter. McDonnell criticized the president for his energy policies, saying that unnecessary regulations are hurting the coal industry and impacting Virginia's port operations as a result.
From Portsmouth, the two headed to Brock’s Bar-B-Que in Chester and end the day at Tart Lumber Company in Sterling, Virginia.
Romney will return to Virginia on Friday, holding a rally at Mobility Supercenter in Richmond.
